Berlin, March 14, 2023. Enapter AG (ISIN: DE000A255G02) has expanded its management following significant corporate growth. The management team around CEO Sebastian-Justus Schmidt, CFO Gerrit Kaufhold, as well as Managing Director and CTO Jan-Justus Schmidt is expanded with two additional Chief Officers and Managing Directors to further strengthen Enapter’s operating companies. The C-level will also be expanded with Vaitea Cowan in the area of communication.
Michael Söhner moves up to the management board of Enapter S.r.l. and leads the operational business of Enapter as Chief Operations Officer (COO) since 1 March 2023. Previously, he was Head of Engineering & Pisa Site Operations Manager at Enapter’s Italian site. As COO, he will be responsible for the further expansion and optimisation of the operational processes in the company.
Philip Hainbach, already Chief Governance Officer (CGO) since October 1, 2022 and previously Head of Energy Policy & Government Affairs at Enapter, has been Managing Director of Enapter GmbH since 01 March 2023. As CGO, he continues to be responsible for the areas of Legal, Governance, HR, Sustainability, Funding and Public Affairs.
Michael Söhner and Philip Hainbach each act as co-managing directors of the two companies, respectively, and will drive the expansion of the business activities together with the managing director of Enapter S.r.l. and Enapter GmbH, Jan-Justus Schmidt.
The role of Chief Communication Officer (CCO) has been held by Vaitea Cowan since March 1, 2023. She is a co-founder of the company and previously held the position of Head of Communication. As CCO, Vaitea Cowan is responsible for the internal and external communication of all sites. Her extremely strong network in the industry and her previous international appearances as the face of Enapter offer the best prerequisites for further expanding the perception of the company and the brand.
